I wish there were more images from the Met Gala like this- not just revelling in the glamour of fashion but also acknowledging the human cost of it.
On the one hand this picture is a reminder of how far America has come in terms of race relations, giving us hope for further evolution (which is so sorely needed). On the other hand, it reminds us of the blood, sweat and tears that went into building America's cotton industry. Sadly, there are huge travesties and injustices that still happen in the name of fashion.

I haven’t seen anything on here about this yet, and its kinda a big deal?
Biden’s speech outlining his 1.4T relief bill includes some dumb things. But.
It includes a federal increase to a 15$ minimum wage.
It ends tips-adjusted minimum wage, so that’d be 15 too.
It ends disability minimum wage, you know? that thing? where you can pay someone literally pennies to do a job? that. It ends that. And its in a bill that will be very hard to defeat.
So honestly, if the cost to get those three things is that its not a *new* $2000 check, only a $1400 check.... you may disagree, but I’ll call this one a win.
